Grant Us Peace

MetUC image metspringIt will be a remarkable twinning: the greatest tragedy in the Christian world marked by the greatest musical piece ever written. On Good Friday, which commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, the Festival Choir at Metropolitan United Church will perform the great B-minor Mass by Johann Sebastian Bach.

 
Whether Christian or not, everyone knows the grief that follows the death of a loved one. This mass, which moves from requests for mercy to final hopes for peace, responds to that feeling, and is majestic in its setting of timeless texts. It won’t fail to comfort us in this moment of disturbing news from around the world.

 
Complete with instrumental accompaniment, gifted soloists, and ready choristers, the mass begins at 7:30 p.m., March 30. Tickets are $30 at the door. Metropolitan United, an affirming, diverse church at the corner of Queen East and Church streets, is celebrating its 200th year and welcomes all to share this musical moment in the beauty of its Gothic sanctuary.
